Will I get the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card if I have a CANADIAN Amex SPG ?

I'm moving to the US from Canada and I need to get a US Marriott Credit Card.

I'd like to know if I will get the bonus or will it get denied? I have a Canadian Amex SPG which was upgraded to the Bonvoy without request and I want to order the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless and get the 100,000 bonus points.

Moved to the Marriott forum where I think you'll get quicker help.

Apparently, nobody else has tried this. Since it sounds like you're going to get the card anyway, let us all know if you get the bonus. My guess is that you will since US and Canadian credit files are completely separate and Chase decides if you get the bonus or not.

You should know as soon as you apply. When I applied for the Chase Visa (which I’ve never had before), I was told I wouldn’t be eligible for the bonus (since I have the SPG Amex).

Who told you? Was it part of the sign up online?

I want to know if I should cancel my Canadian Amex and wait 30 days before ordering it. I don't want to miss the 100,000 points!

It was part of the online sign up. However I can tell you that I had the Cdn SPG Amex for many years (and still have it) when I applied for the US SPG Amex and was eligible for the sign up bonus. That was about 3 yrs ago.

3 years ago it was simplier and we didn't have all these rules
Is there someone at Chase that I can contact?

This is an edge case that nobody at Chase will be trained on. I place the odds of you finding someone who will actually know the answer at 10%. Whoever you contact will insist they know, but if you call five times, you will probably get five different answers.

A perfectly honest answer LOL
But will the system automatically tell me when I'm applying? or i'll only find out after I do the min spend and never get the points?

Assume I won't be eligible because I currently OWN a Marriott Amex credit card. I would just need to close it, wait 30 days then apply for the Chase? Correct?


Keeping both Marriott Credit Cards won't give me two 15nights for status. I just lose the 100$ for 35,000night.
